"Photography is a medium, a language, through which I might come to experience directly, live more closely with, the interaction between myself and nature."

Paul Caponigro sees photography as being more of a spiritual experience than a physical process. His landscapes are born from intuition rather than reason. Each photograph contains a specific emotion, a link between the physical world of nature and the spirit world of the mind. In the words of the artist: "I work to attain a 'state of heart,' a gentle space offering inspirational substance that could purify one's vision. Photography, like music, must be born in the unmanifest world of spirit".

Paul Caponigro began working in photography when he was thirteen, the same time he was studying piano. He has always preserved the musical qualities of nature in his work. A strong harmony is present in all of his photographs. Paul uses landscape and still life as his primary means of expression. His works include the well known Megaliths series documenting Stonehenge and other rock formations of the British Isles. He has also photographed temples in Japan, and the mesas of Arizona and New Mexico.
